Members of the Ely Inner Wheel club have raised £776.57 for a local charity.

Eight members of the group visited Maggie's Centre on the Addenbrooke's Campus to donate the cheque, which was presented by the president.

They were welcomed by the staff with tea and cake and then shown around the facilities. Maggie's centres support those who have cancer and their families to cope with worries and fears.
